Strata Certificate

Strata is the most commonly used form of subdivision for residential apartments and townhouses. It allows for the subdivision of land into separate lots and common property under the Strata Schemes Development Act 2015. This subdivision can be vertically within a building or horizontally on a block, including residential, commercial offices, industrial developments and retirement villages.
